Bakhtawar threatens action against makers of Benazir’s biopic without family’s consent
The daughter of the former premier, in a tweet on Friday, termed it “unacceptable” and vowed to take action against it.
Certainly no consent from her living heirs/children was sought. Absolutely unacceptable and we will be taking action against it. https://t.co/onq9F4xgYT

Mehwish Hayat, in a recent Instagram post, confirmed her appearance as the late prime minister. The Punjab Nahi Jaungi actress had added in her post that she was honoured to be given the opportunity to learn about the late Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader.
However, following Bakhtawar’s objection, Hayat replied to her on Twitter, saying: “There is a project at the very early stages of development about your amazing mother. This cannot and will not be done without the consent or blessing of the family. I am sure that the team involved will be in touch before they progress further.”
She further said that as an actress she was researching as much as she could about a real idol of hers.
“Irrespective of any film, I would love to meet someday and learn more about her,” she said further in her response to Bakhtawar.a
